Friday 1 August 2008

It was Friday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of August people in US were listening to I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry. Pineapple Express, directed by David Gordon Green, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Rules Of Deception by Christopher Reich was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Mummy Forensics. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 101-in-1 Explosive Megamix or Avalon Code.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2008 or at August 01 across the years.
